Iraq Casualties Round-Up

For the month of May, currently available information indicates the following information:

67 coalition combat deaths, 10 non-combat deaths.

Essentially, this is a fairly typical death toll compared to other months for the past two years.

979 Iraqi civilian fatlaties, 148 police/military fatalities.

What does it bode for Iraq that civilian fatalities are at their second highest since Icasualties began taking the stats in March of 2005, while police/military fatalities are dropping? What does it say about the police's and military's priorities?

Wounded numbers are not in yet.

That is all.
